This was a fantastic training video from beginning to end. Though I had experienced Amplitube 4 for sometime now I was still able to benefit further.

Very well presented

It appears some products are shipped assuming the user would have been born suckling on a Teac. I bought one such product, Amplitube 4...and it is a great product, but I had no experience with recording digital or stone tablet. I was entering a new world completely blind. I had in fact given up on the A4 program...when I found Groove3. This instructional series is well thought out and presented. There are 16 episodes...almost all have a moment of clarity, I didn't use the installation segment. The Groove 3 videos showed me how in depth A4 in fact is...so, to make my life even easier I wanted to see about getting the videos loaded on my iPad. One email to Groove 3 support (Thanks again, Tony) taught me what to do.

poor video begining

This has somewhat good info, except He could have mentioned the drivers that needed to be downloaded to even hear the amps play. I accidentally found out on my own after some frustration. An important part that was left out.

1. When did you start dabbling in music?

When I was really young, maybe 3 or 4 years old. That's when I got my first (toy) drum set and played it all the time. I was studying viola at 7, piano at 8, and drums at 10.

2. What training have you had?

In college, I received a Bachelor of Music in theory/composition from SIUE, and a Bachelor of Science in recording production and technology from MTSU. Working in big studios in Chicago after college, I learned as much if not more working as an assistant/2nd engineer, often repairing/troubleshooting problems on the fly. It better equipped me to work independently AND with others.

3. When did you get into recording?

In high school. My punk band saved all our pennies to record at an 8-track studio for $10 per hour. I was fascinated by the power of multitracking, overdubbing, mixing, etc.

4. People you have worked with/for?

I've worked with commercial music producers and talent for TV and radio commercials, many of which were national/international brands. I also worked with bands and artists in the studio, including the Frogs, Kelley Deal, James Iha, Sebastian Bach, any many others. As a tech support engineer, I've helped thousands of customers. I worked directly with several high profile customers, including John Fogerty, Bruce Swedien, Oscar Petersen, John Tesh, Andy Sturmer (Jellyfish), Greg Lisher (Camper Van Beethoven), Chris Vrenna, and engineers for Paul Simon, Wilco, Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, and ICP to name a few.

Why are you so good at training people?

When I was providing technical support, my approach was not only to solve the problem, but to also listen carefully to the end-user's needs AND explain what the cause and solution of any problem was. Putting technical jargon into more relate-able terms helps. I'm also an adjunct professor at a local university, and apply the same ideology when teaching. Whether you're working with a customer or student, you have to put yourself in their shoes.
